Judicial Contact

To Secure a Hearing Date via E-mail
We are suggesting that when contacting district judges to secure hearing dates that you do so via e-mail to the judges’ administrative assistants.  Please include the following information in your e-mail request: 
  • Name and case number
  • Type of hearing
  • Estimated time needed for hearing
  • Names of all attorneys in the case
(Please copy scheduling personnel for all offices on your e-mail request so that one reply from the court will go to all offices. When responding please remember to “Reply to All.”)
  • Division 1- Judge Larson’s Administrative Assistant is Bridget Wilson and she can be e-mailed at aad1@5thjd.org.
  • Division 2 – Judge Fowler’s Administrative Assistant is Jennifer Munday and she can be e-mailed at aad2@5thjd.org.
  • Division 3 – Judge Wheeler’s Administrative Assistant is Ginger Kraft and she can be e-mailed at aad3@5thjd.org.

You may also utilize e-mail to demonstrate that you have complied with the local practice rule which requires that a good faith effort be made to resolve disputes prior to setting a hearing on post-judgment domestic motions.  (Please insure that all attorneys/parties are copied on e-mails to avoid ex-parte communications.)
